Free Sharon Mills Historic Tour

Did you know that Henry Ford had a strong influence on the area? Want to learn more about the areas rich heritage? How about exploring one of the many great parks throughout Washtenaw County available to families?

Then take the family to Sharon Mills (5701 Sharon Hollow Rd., Manchester) on June 5 & 19, July 10 & 24 and August 7 & 21 for a docent guided tour (1:00-4:00 p.m.). Learn about the varied uses of this 1850's mill, view a collection of relevant artifacts, and learn about Henry Ford’s influence at Sharon Mills Park and see a demonstration of the hydroelectric generator that was used during Village Industry days. It's a free tour, a beautiful site along the River Raisin and a great way to learn about local history for your children and teens.


  1. Wow, this place looks awesome! I can't wait to check it out! I stumbled upon your blog after doing a little research for the Ann Arbor area. This place would be great for myself and my photography. I actually photograph in the area, and LOVE shooting at the Arb for children and family portraiture. I can't wait to visit! Thanks for posting. I will put a link to my site!
